Arai Signet-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Signet-Q takes all the favorite features of the RX-Q and create a whole new series based on all the successes. On the outside, the Arai Signet-Q Helmet looks very similar to it's namesake, the RX-Q, but on the inside you can see and feel the difference. A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time. This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape. Additional Features of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side) Long Oval Fit SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pin Lock Max-Vision Brow Vent pinlock lense included. Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back Long-Oval shape helps prevent Hot-Spot Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner Removable, replaceable, washable interior Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

I have a long oval head shape, and my head measures just a hair over 57 cm in circumference. That should put me in a medium, but the size small fits much better. (My head is such a long oval that I wish it was longer and narrower.)
If you have a long oval, then your circumference measurement is sort of deceptive. The width of my head must be fairly small, because there is far too much play side-to-side in any medium I've tried on. That includes Bell RS-1, Shoei RF-1100 and Icon Airframe.
The medium Arai Signet-Q has that extra width as well, presumably because it's a simply a stretched RX-Q. In order to get a good fit side-to-side I had to drop down to a small. In any other helmet this would create a terrible hot spot on my forehead. But the Signet-Q was nearly perfect.
Just something to consider. Gave it 4/5 because it's just a little overweight and overpriced. But it's the only game in town for long ovals.

A dynamic look, styling and comfort all come together in this fabric racing jacket with an aggressive and essential design inspired by the new Dainese suits and dedicated to riders looking for a lightweight technical jacket with an eye on price. The high levels of active and passive safety offered by all Dainese garments are guaranteed by homologated composite protections, the pocket for the insert of the G-type back protector, and reflecting inserts. The ergonomic cut, side adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zipper, and removable thermal liner permit elevated comfort and versatility. Protection Composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Pocket for G1 and G2 back protectors Material Abrasion and tear resistance Duratex fabric Comfort Jacket-pants fastening system Waist adjustment Temperature adjustment Removable thermal liner Sanityzed liner Other Reflecting inserts Pocket on removable liner Internal pocket 3 outer pockets

I picked up this jacket used, but revzilla doesn't have a review, so I'll be the first to share.
I would recommend anyone looking at this jacket to get the Avro instead. Some features this jacket is missing compared to the Avro:
Cordura fabric
Leather collar and cuffs
Back vents
For an extra $20, I would recommend everyone upgrade to the Avro.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Sizing:
I'm a very snug 8.5/42 in Alpinestars. I got the Cortechs in 8.5 and they're definitely roomier. They're a bit long in the toes, but side to side they're almost bang on. I'm hesitant to exchange them for an 8 because they might be too small.
Quality:
Some of the stitching looks a bit shoddy, only time will tell how they hold up.
Delivery:
Came to my house is less than 24 hours. Incredible service from Revzilla.
Overall:
A good value. But I think I'll upgrade to a better brand in a year or two.
Yes, I recommend this product.
